Default Will I be disappointed?

I was told when I went to Antarctica, not to go to Alaska for a long time, or I would be disappointed. So I have waited ten years. Have booked a cruise in September.

Any ice bergs like this?




Looking forward to this cruise.

B.......

Hope this works.

Be ann,
Antaritica and Alaska are different. The wildlife is different, the scenrey is different, the culture and history of the lands are so different( I am not even sure there is a" culture " in Antaritica as I assume it is basically uninhabitated) so as for you being disappointed, it is up to you.
Go to Alaska with the expectations of seeing something " different" form Antaritica and you will have a great time.
The cruise along the west coast of Canada and Alaska is so beautiful, I can't imagine trying to compare the experiences!
I bet the ice bergs were beautiful( awesome in fact) in Antartica, and I'd love to see it, but I know it wouldn't be the same as the Coastal Mountain rainforests of the Pacific Northwest!

What you said is so true of any place in the world. All different. And if one travels with the right point of view, will enjoy regardless.

So since I have wanted to visit Alaska since I was a child, know I will enjoy. Just won't compare to Antarctica.

Just for you, posting two of the beautiful ice bergs in Antarctica. (I hope it loads.)
